The European Variation Archive (EVA) is an open-access database of all types of genetic variation data from all species.
In this webinar we shall focus on programmatically accessing the variant data housed at EVA. The webinar will be split into the following sections:
- Introduction to the EVA
- Introduction to the EVA API
- Using the EVA API: examples including Swagger, command line and python
- Where to get additional help
- Summary and wrap-up
As part of the demonstrations we have generated a mock Python script that allows users to access variant data at the EVA. This Python script is available here. You can also download the slides, BED and VCF files used in the webinar.
We host documentation related to the EVA API, including our FAQs, at our website.
Finally, for feature requests, bug reports or general issues related to the EVA web-services please start a ticket at out GitHub web-services repo.
